This issue celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Society’s publication, and pays tribute to those who were major participants in its development. The cover honors its first president, Frederic P. Elwert, whose leadership was critical in the growth and development of the society.
On the opening page pictures of the presidents from 1970 through 1993 are displayed, with all Officers and Directors names prominently featured on the following pages.
There is an introduction of the early historians in Rutland, beginning with The Rev. Samuel Williams, followed by the Society’s birth, its search for a home, and ending with a review of the Society at work in 1994. Several pictures accompany the text which concludes with a tribute to Jean C. Ross who served as managing editor for 15 years.
A fine account of the early days and growth of the Society.
